Welcome to SewCalGal’s entry in the 2012 Pets on Quilts Show.
For my followers that may be visiting and are not familiar with the Pets on Quilts Show, I want to start off this post with sharing some “set the stage” information:
Jacque (Lily Pad Quilting) is hosting the 2012 Pets on Quilts Show. The show starts today and goes thru August 10th. The Pets on Quilts Show has been a fun event that allows us to show off our love of quilting, as well as our love of pets of all types. And, to also promote adoption of homeless pets! As the show owner, Jacque has full rights to put what ever spin on this event that she wants, to make it her own.
Ok, back to my PSA – I hope every quilter with cats will take time to remind them how lucky they are to live in a loving home with a quilter. And, I’m sure you appreciate how much they help you with your quilting. And, I hope everyone will consider adopting a homeless pet from their local shelter, when they have an opportunity to provide a loving home. Of course, shelters are also always in need of donations, as well as pet beds, so you may want to periodically use your scraps and make a pet bed to donate to your local shelter. After all, four legged ball of fur certainly sleeps better on a bed than concrete or a metal cage. And, if they have a good night sleep they’ll present themselves cheerfully and have a better chance for a good adoption the next day!
I want to confess, that sadly, SewCalGal is currently petless. But, I’m always willing to give a four legged person a good body massage or hug. And, I love to pet sit. I do feel fortunate that I have a neighbor kitty that loves to come visit when I’m gardening. So, on a recent visit I asked this cute kitty to pose on a quilt I just made. It was an interesting challenge for me, as I learned that a cat may want to walk on a quilt, or play under it, but when the camera comes out they really don’t want to pose.
Again, I hope your click on over and check out all the entries in the Pets on Quilts Show, hosted by Lilypad Quilting. Entries are also accepted thru August 10th, so keep coming back to this show to see “all” of the entries. And, I look forward to seeing you entry in this fun show too!
